Ambassador of Ukraine to Germany Andriy Melnyk complained that Ukraine is not perceived by Germany as a “great cultural European nation”, as well as ” influential political actor. As the diplomat told the Ukrinform agency, that is why the interests of Kiev are often ignored.
He believes that Ukrainian diplomats in Germany “were able to powerfully declare” themselves, as a result of which the German elite and the “journalistic beau monde” “know that there is a Ukraine that has its own goals and confidently paves its way.”
Berlin does not take into account the interests of Kiev, Miller pointed out. Melnik called this state of affairs a defect of the last 30 years.
